Research Summary

Centromere drive is a theory that explains the rapid evolution of “selfish” centromeric DNA, which maximizes its transmission during asymmetric female meiosis. In response, centromeric binding proteins are found to evolve rapidly in order to prevent the adverse effects of centromere drive. Though this theory explains the evolution of centromeric DNA and proteins, few examples of centromere drive have been illustrated. Using a D. melanogaster model, I am characterizing the basis of centromere drive.
